Description:

The Mobile Monitor is a remote controlled industrial firefighting tool, however could be used in structural or wildland firefighting as well, depending on track configuration. it goes out ahead of firefighters pulling charged hose or uncharged up to 1000 feet. Has a very efficient battery that will run for DAYS and has autospray patterns should the unit need to be abadoned during a serious situation. This unit will prevent deaths from BLEVE's, chemical/toxin exposure, structural instability and go where other vehicles can't. Weighs 570 lbs, (the smallest model) applies ANY retardant or chemicals up to 1000 GPM. Larger models available and apply up to 2000 gpm. Saw this unit in a public demonstration in Ukiah CA and it performed well and puts firefighters out of harms way when there is true and present danger. This company also develops other products that are invented by firefighters. This one is a winner as I have friends that work in refineries which are the scariest places to fight a fire. The company will assist with attaining a grant for purchase of these.

    This product will prevent firefighting personnel from being killed and now there will be an option to send in a tool like this to make sure they all come home. This also makes it so a fire incident commander is not personally held responsible for sending firefighters in where the results could be fatal. It also has the big thumbs up from the Western Propane Gas Association and they want to use it to train firefighters that deal with BLEVES. All Mobile Monitors are engineered, built and designed in the USA. This company also participates in benevolant things for our firefighting community. Last but not least, my boyfriend is a firefighter and thinks these people rock it because of the firefighter product review board and their collaboration with local fire agencies.
